Information on Health Services in Iraq and Syria

We have a graduate student who is doing his dissertation on health 
services in Iraq and Syria during the British mandate. He is looking 
for archival sources which deal with this subject. He is particularly 
interested in material from the Iraqi medical school and memoirs, 
diaries, or papers of physicians (regardless of nationality) who 
worked in Iraq and Syria during this time. He has exhausted most of 
the print sources.

Thanks,
Michael

Re: To be or not to be exact ?


Dear Abazar,

Salam

Atlas of the Middle East (1993) was prepared by the C.I.A. and merely
scanned by the Perry-Castaneda Library at the University of Texas for their
web resources. I wonder what else the C.I.A. got wrong?

Wishing you a healthy and more peaceful 2004.

Aseel

Re: Information on Health Services in Iraq and Syria

Salam, Michael
I assume that your student realizes that the British mandate was over Iraq,
and the French mandate was over Syria?!

There are a number of biographies and autobiographies of physicians who
worked in Iraq during the British mandate that come to mind ---the British
Sinderson who was the royal Hashemite family's physician,  the American
missionary Dr. Scudder who worked in the Amarah area before moving to
Kuwait, the Iraqis Drs. Sami Shawkat and Kamal al-Sammarai, and the Lebanese
Dr. Sharif Osseiran ('Usayran).

There is material in Review of the Civil Administration of Mesopotamia
(1920) authored anonymously by Gertrude Bell and published by the India
Office, as well as the Colonial Office's own Report on the Administration of
Iraq, 1922-1932, 10 vols (1924-1933).

Has your student read Ireland's Iraq (1938), Longrigg's Iraq, 1900 to 1950
(1953), and P. Sluglett's Britian in Iraq, 1914-1932 (1976) all of whom use
a lot of British documents?

There are Iraq's own statistics on health services and development.
There is a chapter on "Health and Medicine" in Kingdom of Iraq (1946) that
describes briefly the nation-wide health organization in the fourteen liwas.
It contains as well a general survey of preventative measures against
malaria, bilharzia, trachoma, and tuberculosis during the British mandate
period.

Aseel Nasir Dyck
